Bankead tea-tas­tic tea­room

Rutherglen Reformer - - Joint Effort - Edel Ke­nealy

Ruther­glen pupils will have a tea-tas­tic time this week when they show off their en­tre­pre­neur­ial skills with a pop-up shop in the town.

Stu­dents at Bankhead Pri­mary School will open their shop in Ruther­glen Ex­change on Fri­day, June 9.

The ven­ture is part of a Young En­ter­prise Scot­land ini­tia­tive dubbed the High Street Chal­lenge.

Chil­dren in pri­maries four to seven were tasked with generating ideas for a one-day pop up shop.

Pupils had to con­sider the needs of their com­mu­nity, the strengths and weak­nesses of their busi­ness, start-up costs and po­ten­tial profit.

The ideas for a po­ten­tial pop-up shop were pre­sented in school and after care­ful con­sid­er­a­tion, the win­ning class was pri­mary 4/5.

The class, along­side their teacher Mrs Michelle Dis­ley, are cur­rently ar­rang­ing all items to get‘Bankhead Tea-tas­tic’up and run­ning.

Open from 10am to 2.30pm in unit 34 at Ruther­glen Ex­change, the tea­room will see ev­ery child in the class per­form a role in run­ning the busi­ness.

This in­cludes serv­ing ta­bles, tak­ing or­ders and tak­ing cus­tomers’ pay­ments.

It is hoped Ru­glo­ni­ans will show sup­port for the new ven­ture while en­joy­ing re­fresh­ments.
